Day 22 #Loveuary ❤ – Celebrity Crushes


A revisit to a post I did about this a couple of years back!

It’s devastating… Zayn Malik is leaving One Direction!!!!!

How could he??!!!!

Lil Princess is devastated!

In her 7 year old world, they were the be all and end all of, well, everything!

I saw the news, and had to bring her in out of the garden to break this earth shattering news to her, and she spent an hour watching youtube clips, announcing the decision, and then watching their song videos, as it made her feel better… !!!

As they were… no more!

I giggle, thinking about it! She only really discovered them a couple of months ago, as one of her best buddies is obsessed with them and I wonder, is it a peer pressure thing? Or does she feel she has to like certain songs or bands, because the others do?

Takes me back to my childhood, and teen years though… When my walls started off being covered by Kylie and Jason posters…

What a pair, Kylie and Jason, aka Scott and Charlene!

Oh how I loved to watch Neighbours, and was overjoyed that my favourite characters were now branching out into music as themselves!!!

But how can I forget??!! It didn’t start there, the first posters to appear were of Wham! And at least I can honestly say, my heart wasn’t broken when it came out about George Michael, well, coming out! I was Team Andrew Ridgely all the way!

Oh Wham-drew!!! swoon!

Then there was the teeny tiny Tom Cruise!!!

Top Gun!!

I’ve always loved the dark looks, rather than the blonde Adonis style, oh, apart from the gorgeous Brad Pitt… Hubba hubba!!


But I remember following Bros, that ‘wonderful’ 80’s band of the “When will I be famous?” Song fame… It was because everyone else in my class was swooning over them, buying their Doc Martens and attaching bottle tops to them, like the boys!


Bros… plus one!

It was all about Matt or Luke Goss…which one of the twins did you fancy? No one paid a blind bit of notice to Craig Logan!

Then, from across the pond came New Kids On The Block!



Ok, so I look at that picture now and think “Why???!!!!” But at the time, Jordan Knight was to die for, well in my eyes anyway!!!

It was always more a case of liking a band, singer or actor because everyone else did, not because I really liked them!

I wasn’t big on idolising any of our punjabi stars, or Bollywood actors at that time.. (Had you seen them?!) the actresses were pretty, I wanted to be like them, but the actors.. Hmmm! But nowadays the youngsters have so much eye candy, buff, lean metrosexual guys who parade as actors, for drooling purposes!!!

Now if I was 25 years younger… I know who’d be gracing my walls!! 😜

Arjun Rampal

Still, I can’t complain,  I have my pin up lying next to me every night…

    hahahhahhahaa! I have to laugh out loud when I got to NKOTB. I remember girls in my school swooning over them like they are GOD and because I didn’t like them, I don’t understand what’s all the fuss about. I had to re-frame my thoughts when Mark Wahlberg started acting though; then slowly accepting that he’s quite a good actor post his NKOTB days. THAT was hard! :p

    Bros, Wham and Brad- I’m with you!

    Mine? Leonard Nimoy. Go ahead and laugh…but he brought Vulcans to life for us, he could sing, he was an amazing photographer, and he even wrote poetry. Even though most people didn’t know it, he had a sense of humor, too.

    Also Pierce Brosnan. Dark hair, blue eyes, and that Irish accent! Patrick Swayze, who won my heart in the miniseries North and South before he Dirty Danced the rest of the way in. And, I’ll admit it…I was/am a George Michael girl, and his coming out didn’t bother me in the least – I just wanted to look and listen. And then there was the extremely lovely Morten Harkett from a-ha. Blue eyes and dark hair again…

    Lately, it’s been Shemar Moore, formerly of Criminal Minds. That is a man who is put together just right, My Accomplice laughs at me, because I stopped midstep the first time I saw him on television, and blurted, “Who’s THAT!?” Of course, even he has to admit he can see the beauty.

    Like you, I prefer dark men to look at. Fortunately, I’m not as into the packaging in a mate – my Accomplice is almost a dead ringer for Henry VIII – to the point where, when I first showed the kids a portrait of the former King, they couldn’t believe it wasn’t their Daddy! His nose is a bit different, but otherwise….

    Anyway, here’s my post. It’s a bit naughty today, so be warned!

    Lovely Sis, I hope Lil Princess recovered quickly! As for your teenage tastes they were excellent! Arjun Rampal looks gorgeous, can’t say what your resident pin up is like but he must be dishy!! 😋💜
